take a look at how it's been jerry-rigged, sharron angle in nevada, compromise unfortunately has been such a dirty word right now. if, in fact, you're a moderate republican you're a turncoat or rhino. we have to stop this conversation and say, listen, if you're an arlen specter or rudman or scott brown, you are also welcome into the party. because you may be pro-choice, pro-gay rights, whatever the case may be, you're welcome. to sit here in washington, d.c. around a table and a thing of scotch and determine who the republican nominee is going to be is absolutely ludicrous and ridiculous. we need to go back to the basics of letting the best person win the primary -- >> you two are talking in circles. i'm trying to figure out why the region party tends to have had an unusual load of crazy people latery running to the point where they disturb the image of the party. mourdock hurt romney. let's be honest here. akin hurt romney. what's her name in sharron angle hurt the party and still hurts the party. i think people like michele bachmann still hurt the party. allen west hurts the people.
